Reasons to attend and to not attend Rhodes College

To Attend

  • “The location. Memphis is a big city and there are so many things that you can do and ways for you to get involved in the community.”
  • “The size of the student body because you can be in smaller classes and get more one on one time with your professors.”
  • “There are so many opportunities both inside and outside of Memphis.” [See research opportunities here.]
  • “The education is incredibly holistic. You get a lot of breadth and depth, which is really nice.”
  • “The support the student body has. There’s lots of money for activities on campus.”
  • “There are fantastic research and community engagement opportunities.”
  • “The career services aspect and how you’ll be set up with a job afterward.” [98% of 2016 graduates are employed, attend graduate school, or volunteer full time.]

To Not Attend

  • “If you don’t like the size of the school. Some people like walking around not knowing or recognizing faces. They enjoy the comfort of being around strangers.”
  • “If you want to be in a huge city. Memphis is big, but if you’re from a Los Angeles, Chicago, or New York, it’ll be different for you.”
  • “One of the biggest pitfalls I hear from other students is that the community is small. Your actions are easily known, and word spreads quickly at a small school.”
  • “If you’re an international student looking for a more diverse student body, or are looking for more international experiences and opportunities, Rhodes might not be the best fit for you.” [Multicultural and international students make up 30% of the Rhodes student body.]
  • “The location is also a bad thing because there is more crime around you.” [Although Memphis is one of the most dangerous cities in America, the Hein Park and Rhodes View neighborhoods surrounding Rhodes’ campus are low-crime neighborhoods.]
